 <fugolini>      1
 <fugolini>      Ok, we start with the first issue in the agenda: FAmSCo and
 Ambassadors wiki pages updates
 <fugolini>      Fabian wrote in the list that there are a lot of
obsolete wiki pages
 <fabian_a>      !
 <fugolini>      He was right.
 <fugolini>      fabian_a: (after i have to ask you a question
concerning this topic)
 <fabian_a>      as example: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Hoarding
 <fabian_a>      the ambassador start page
 http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors (there is too much content)
 <fabian_a>      http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Schedule
 *       MrTom (n=mrtom at fedora/MrTom) has joined #fedora-meeting
 <fabian_a>      and there are some more...
 <fabian_a>      eof
 <MrTom> ThomasCanniot
 <fugolini>      fabian_a: you answered my question, i was in search of
 hoarding page (i asked you in one of my mail to your thread)
 <fugolini>      but now it's okù
 <fugolini>      I think we have to take care of those page
 <fabian_a>      perhaps we should move this kind of content to art
 <fugolini>      those are our references
 <fugolini>      now i'm talking about the content pages
 <fugolini>      for the Hoarding page etc... i think we could start asking
 to Ambassadors
 <fugolini>      and then, with the help of art team we can improve them
 <fugolini>      it's ok?
 <fabian_a>      +1
 <jmbuser>       +1
 <fugolini>      ok, i'll write an email to the list tomorrow
 <jmbuser>       !
 <fugolini>      jmbuser:
 <jmbuser>       This is good time to be reviewing the wiki content and pages
 with the migration to MediaWiki coming soon.
 <jmbuser>       eof
 <fugolini>      this is the second part of this issue
 <fugolini>      i wanted to start
 <fugolini>      that's an hard work and i think each FAmSCo member with the
 help of all ambassadors has to take care of
 <fugolini>      We have to reorganize the welcome page (as fabian
 suggested), adding new content to ambassadors help pages
 <fugolini>      work on new meeting templates
 <fugolini>      etc...
 <fugolini>      i think we have to make a list of what we have to update
 (like a To-Do list)
 <jmbuser>       +1
 <fabian_a>      +1
 <MrTom> +1
 <fugolini>      If there aren't volunteers for such issue, i will
 (tomorrow) create a wiki page where each person could add the page he
 <fugolini>      it's necessary to update
 <fugolini>      we have moreover to decide a deadline: it's 15 days ok?
 <iWolf> back - wife is rescued...
 <fugolini>      (15 days starting from the creating of the wiki page=
 <fugolini>      iWolf: good
 <jmbuser>       !
 <fugolini>      *creation
 <fugolini>      jmbuser:
 <jmbuser>       15 days should be OK, but I believe no firm date has been
 set for the migration
 <jmbuser>       eof
 *       iWolf is caught up
 <iWolf> +1 on wiki cleanup
 <fugolini>      we can delay it whenever we want, it's just a trick to put
 us at work :)
 <fugolini>      starting from me
 <fugolini>      ehehe
 <fugolini>      ok, so tomorrow (nobody offers himself) i will create a
 wiki page with such list
 <fugolini>      if nobody as anything to say, we can leap to the next

 <fugolini>      2. Open Ambassadors Initiatives
 <fugolini>      I think you know the Fedora Ambassadors Wall initiative?
 <fugolini>      ok, we have received a lot of messages
 <fugolini>      and we are able to create the first poster with those
 <iWolf> !
 <fugolini>      for the layout i will ask nicubunu who gave me his
 avaiability for such work
 <fugolini>      iWolf:
 <iWolf> Is there a link to the first post?  I think I missed it.
 <iWolf> eof
 <iWolf> s/post/poster/
 <fugolini>      first post? about Fedora Ambassadors Wall?
 <fugolini>      ah
 <fugolini>      ok
 <fugolini>      i didn't talk with nicubuntu yet
 <fugolini>      givinig him the "go"
 <fugolini>      i wanted to ask you before
 <fugolini>      i want to ask you about the title: is ok "The
Ambassadors Voice"
 <fugolini>      a?
 <fugolini>      Second: at the bottom there will be the Fedora Ambassadors site
 <fugolini>      it would be a way to give more visibility to us
 <fugolini>      This is the reason i want to officialize it today
 <fugolini>      with an ok from FAmSCo we could create our first
Ambassadors Poster
 <fugolini>      it's ok? Have you concernings about it?
 <jmbuser>       !
 <fugolini>      jmbuser:
 <jmbuser>       Go for it - let's see what the Art team can come up with
 <jmbuser>       eof
 <fugolini>      ok, i think it's not necessary to vote for this issue
 <fugolini>      Now before adjourn the meeting
 <fugolini>      i want to remember that we will continue to discuss abot
 those issue on the M-L.
 *       iWolf phone
 <fugolini>      Currently (i don't forget past issue, but now we have
 different priorities) we have two main
 <fugolini>      issue:
 <fugolini>      *issues
 <fugolini>      1. FAmSCo Budget: as i remembered we are discussing about
 this on the M-L. Jeffrey is doing a great job defining report
 guidelines, defining the structure of this one
 <jmbuser>       +1
 <fugolini>      FAmSCo members are invited to give thei
opinions/ideas in the list
 <fugolini>      2. Wiki cleanup:
 <fugolini>      we have to update contents and make informations easy to find
 *       Mostafa (n=root at has joined #fedora-meeting
 <fugolini>      i will take care of it (if someone else want to do this)
 <jmbuser>       !
 <fugolini>      jmbuser:
 <jmbuser>       I can assist, but I can't drive it...
 <jmbuser>       eof
 <fugolini>      happy to hear this
 <fugolini>      thank you
